Super Slow Singapore Internet

Recent IDA survey shows that Singapore is the 2nd WORST in consumer satisfaction with the Broadband and Internet Service worldwide and that is MY GOD... a real eye opener since we have full 3G, 3.75G, Fiber NGN and many more...
Just look at this!!! It really disgusts me.. I hacked and tested many cable connections (Singtel, M1, Starhub, Pacific Internet, ViewQuest) and I really find that DSL is not even up to 2Mbps on many networks.Starhub...can claim many things but in real life.. only about 5mbps for international traffic. Come on lah.... even my 4G network which I am currently in RIVERVALE CRESENT, SINGAPORE and I am piggy backing through the Malaysia Network.. is 8Mbps... Kind of make me super pissed when my subscription is super expensive....and the service.. super sucks!!!! As for OPEN NET.. they will take forever to fiber up the whole block... and what they's going to take ages.. come on.. it's a necessity now to have a good internet connection. Just as how we need Electricity and Water.. Internet is the core of the business nowadays. So please.. Dear beloved Mr Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong.. tell these buggers to get their act together ..or else.. give them a few million dollar fine for every day they fail to get it going.... We deserve to be faster than CELCOM and many others ...heck even those in FELDA get faster internet.

Hari Malaysia

Many of us do not know that the actual Malaysia Independence is that of the 16 Sept 1963 when Singapore, North Borneo and Sabah merged with Malaya (Federation of Malay States) but not of the 31 Aug 1957 when Malaya gained independence. Those of from the Borneo States (Sabah, Sarawak) remember that by calling it Hari Borneo or some sort and not of the day the incumbent Malaya's day of independence. But what is Independence? Freedom? Freedom from being a Slave or Owned by a Master? Here, 47 years on, we are still not independent. Slaves in the Ancient Days are when we owe money and cannot pay up, we are sold as Slaves , similar to what we have Bankruptcy and Illegal Immigrants or Human Trafficking. Here, ourselves and Children are still at the mercy of our LORDS, the Banks and Institutions, such as MARA, PTPTN and other "Foundations". How can we be free? Those who are poor are totally free. They own their own land, without any caveat or what sort, and everything they buy are in cash. In the matter of fact, these people are those who , what we called Free and Independent. Selamat Hari Malaysia everyone, Singaporeans, Malayans, Sabahans and Sarawakians alike.
